Any Place but PORTLAND!
by ELVISH on JULY 31, 2010 - 6 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I’m in the Portland, OR area seeking to LEAVE and move SOUTH. Looking towards Northern California or the SouthWest. I have a 16′ yurt, wood stove and pipe, cord-and-a-half of seasoned firewood, truck and small flat-bed trailer, tools (construction and landscape/cultivation). Also have 2 goats (wether and dry female), 13 chickens, and 2 companion rabbits. … Need power generation and a LOCATION (with a reliable water source) to setup.

I have the capability (tools, skills, and essential materials) to build additional yurts (at least 2, 16′ or 20′), if necessary or desirable.

Me = Male, 55, Aries, No wife, no kids, no ties.

I am a non-institutionalized human. I practice non-compliance. No diplomas, no certificates. No worshiping. No licenses or insurance’s. Highly self-educated & previously a contractor, I built my own recording and rehearsal studio and believed I was happy. Then I busted UNCLE Sam. This was not a good thing. He has many friends and will never admit a thing.


Dutch John’s anarcho-woodmobile
by ALEXBENADY on JULY 28, 2010 - 4 Comments in EVENTS

Dutch John works on his gasifier

Whenever Dutch John goes into town, which is as seldom as possible, he tends to walk or take the bike.

He describes himself as a “low profile anarchist and an off-gridder in the broadest senses of the word”. But it’s not just his environmental beliefs that prevent him from taking the car.

Every time he uses his twenty year old Volvo 240, first he has to clean up the cyclone bin, dump the char dust on the compost, fill the fuel bin with sixty pounds of wood, stacking a few sacks on the back seat for extra mileage, spark up the gasifier with a diesel glow plug, wait four minutes for it to heat up,  flare off the surplus carbon monoxide and hydrogen. And then he’s off. (more…)
